Valentine’s Views: Giants make the right move in pairing Joe Schoen, Brian Daboll

Valentine’s Views: Giants make the right move in pairing Joe Schoen, Brian Daboll

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports Can this duo bring the Giants back from the bottom? Will GM Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll be the dynamic duo to bring the New York Giants back to NFL relevance, and perhaps to championship glory? I don’t know. There is no way any of us can know. There is no way co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch, or Schoen and Daboll themselves, can know. What I do know is this — the more I considered the head coaching candidates the Giants were looking at after hiring Schoen, the more Daboll seemed like the best candidate for the job among the...

2022 NFL Draft prospect profile: Daniel Faalele, OT, Minnesota

Photo by Kevin Abele/Icon Sportswire via Faalele is a giant of a man. Could he soon be a giant playing for the Giants? There’s a concept of “first off the bus” players in football. Those are the players who are just so physically, or psychologically, intimidating that you want them to be the first thing the opposing team sees. Minnesota right tackle Daniel Faalele is one of those players. Looking every inch of the 6-foot-9, 380 pounds at which he is listed, Faalele (pronounced Fa-Ah-Lay-lay) is an absolute giant of a man. He will be one of the biggest players...

Photo by Mike Stobe/ Giants also have Logan Ryan and Julian Love at this spot The New York Giants started the 2021 season with one of the more complete safety groups. They signed savvy veteran Logan Ryan to a three-year $31 million contract, had the physical Jabrill Peppers heading into a contract year, and finally received a healthy Xavier McKinney with an entire off-season under his belt. The trio had the trifecta of experience/leadership, physicality, and range. Julian Love operated as the fourth safety in the group. His presence completed an already impressive...

Combing through the small-school ranks to find unheralded players with big-time potential has always been a part of the draft process. Powerhouse programs do a good job of scouring the nation for talented high school recruits, but hidden gems always seem to slip through the cracks. And that doesn’t account for players who were unspectacular in high school yet blossom in college with some physical or mental maturity. Coastal Carolina burst onto the scene with an undefeated season in 2020 and...
